This memorial website was created in the memory of our son, Marcus Melendez who was born in Victorville, California on May 23, 2001 and his journey, here on earth, ended on December 14, 2004 at the age of 3-1/2. Marcus was a very special little boy from the time he was born. He was so cuddly as a baby. Even as he grew into a little boy, he wanted his Mommy, he was always at my side. He had so much personality as a baby. He and his brother, Carlos were best of friends. Carlos would take such good care of Marcus. He would hold him and get him milk in the morning, but they didn't share toys so well. His Daddy is so proud of both of our boys, but there was something special about Marcus. He had that soft, blonde hair, that his barber said looked like cotton, he was left handed, which changed the way I set the table, he tried to be a big boy, but still needed his Mommy and Daddy. He was our baby, but now he's our angel. We just knew someday, somehow, he would break our hearts.
Our love will fly to you each night on angel's wings. Godspeed. Sweet dreams. -Godspeed by the Dixie Chicks, played @ Markie's funeral
I can only imagine What it will be like When I walk By your side
I can only imagine What my eyes will see When your face Is before me I can only imagine.... - "I Can Only Imagine" by Mercy Me
If I was a star.... I'd like to be a very bright one.
Today is God's gift That's why we call it the present.
LITTLE BOYS ARE HEAVEN SENT!!!!
Little Man- Your smile melts my heart.
You have always been so special in all of the things You have said and done.
A Letter From Heaven~
Mommy, I dreamed you a letter This comes from Heaven above Even though I am up here I can still feel your love In Heaven there is no sorrow There is never any pain or fear And would you believe I've not been sick One time since I've been here? You would be so proud of me, Mommy I can do so many things And everyone says I look real cute In my Halo and my wings Every year at Christmas We have a great big tree up here And guess who gets to be the Angel On top of the tree this year? Mommy, I dreamed you this letter That I am sending you tonight To tell you not to worry And let you know that I am all right Sometimes I hear you crying And I wishYou weren't so sad Because I think you are the best Mom Any Angel ever had So please don't feel bad for me I am in God's tender care And he wanted me to tell you That he hears your every prayer I know you miss me, Mommy You know I miss you, too But remember, me and God Are always watching over you We want you to have a good life Full of happiness and joy I'll see you in your dreams, Mommy
Love, Your Little Boy

Thinking of the day, when you went away What a life to take, what a bond to break I'll be missing you
Every night I pray, every step I take Every move I make, every single day I'll be missing you ~Puff Daddy & Faith Evans
Who would you be today / Mommy (His mommy )
I can't believe how much time has gone by. It''s been 9-1/2 years since you left us. You would have been 13 on your birthday last week. I see our friend's kids who are your age, & I see how big & grown up they're getting. I just can't help but wonder...
Still can't get used to it / Mommy (Mommy)
This evening at Grandma's I sat outside while Megan Carlos and Cianna played. I looked around and I could see you everywhere. The patio that was so crazy with the sounds of little kids playing has become quiet.
I miss yo...
Gampa / Mommy :. )
Gampa's gone home to be with you. We miss you and him so much. Life is so different without both of you but I know you're together and it makes me feel a little less sad. You will both live in our hearts forever. Go now Markie...
Sing and dance... / Mommy ~.
Markie, your great Grandma has gone home. You'll have to give her a big hug and take her by the hand and show her around. Now you can dance to Grandma's songs all the time. She always loved that. You'll have to find Uncle Brownie to...
Love / Ashley Moradi (Aunt)
Just remember 1 Corinthians 13:4, 7, 8 - Love is patient, Love is Kind... Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, LOVE NEVER ENDS. It helps me have strength.
Once Upon a Time... there was a blonde hair, blue eye little boy named Marcus. He was very loving and a little on the shy side. He loved his family so much. Maybe it's because we all loved him so much. His favorite foods were pizza, hot dogs, strawberries, popcorn, chocolate milk, butter and jewwee (peanut butter and jelly). He would eat the strawberries right out of the carton, as soon as I pulled them out of the grocery bag. I would make cookies for dessert and he would want popcorn. He loved to be at Grandma' s house with his brother, Carlos and his cousins, Brittany and Megan. He liked to watch Caillou or start trouble with the other kids. He would get so excited when we would travel to Granny and Papa's house. He liked to play with Papa and Auntie Stevi and Auntie Ashley. He would get so itchy and rashy from Patches, their cat. I always felt so bad for him. He loved animals. On weekends, Marcus and Carlos would go outside and be with Daddy. Marcus would come inside alot, maybe to check to see if I was still there. He and his brother played with Tonka trucks, Matchbox cars and rode their bike and tricycle all of the time. They would squirt each other with the Super Soaker water guns and squirt the dogs. Carlos sure does miss that boy and so do we.
